This & That
- If you want the freedom to design your pages, send them press-ready.
- Press-ready pages are pages already typeset using the proper page size, margins, and artwork specifications. No extra typesetting or alterations are needed. The quality of the printed work is determined by the quality of the material submitted.
- Press-ready cookbooks are priced by the page count. Our recipe formats average 3 recipes per page, so if you only place 1-2 recipes per page, it will cost you more.
- For specifications on how to furnish material, print Press-Ready Cookbook Pages Guidelines (PDF). For pricing and an order form, print our Press-Ready Order Form (PDF).
- We require a PDF, as this will provide the highest print quality. We want your pages to look as good as possible! Use our File Uploader to submit your files.
- All cookbook pages must be press-ready (title page, index, personal pages, etc.). A FREE proof will be sent to you for your approval. Corrections or changes will be subject to a charge.
- Production time is 25–30 business days (5-6 weeks).
